Outstanding durability, light weight; keep feet dry and warm.
These are among the best socks I've ever owned. As I think of it, three of the best socks I've ever had were Carhartt, and these are right up there with the best. They are surprisingly warm for their light weight, but they wick moisture and keep your feet dry in all but the worst conditions, and they are amazingly soft, yet durable. Mine, bought at different times from Dungarees.net, are anywhere up to four years old, heavily used hiking, doing chores inside boots, both leather and rubber wellies, and for everyday wear in casual dress, and they're all still going strong.
And this'll get you: Last winter while suffering a nasty gout attack, I found that I could slip one of these soft socks over my foot (carefully mind you) and then I could sleep, because the bedsheets couldn't irritate the foot any more and cause excruciating pain.
